Playwright Tim Pinckney began writing plays after ten years as a working actor.  His first play, Message to Michael, was produced by Rattlestick Playwrights Theatre in New York City and has enjoyed several subsequent regional productions.  His play Ever So Humble had its premiere at The Hangar Theatre starring Andréa Burns and Eric T. Miller, directed by Peter Flynn.  Other plays include A Perfect Blendship (Workshopped at the Hangar Theatre) and First Refusal (Workshopped at Rattlestick Theatre).  Tim's latest play, A Prehistoric Ritual, was recently completed and he is currently working on the screenplay adaptation of Message to Michael. Tim recently wrote the stage adaptation for the world premiere of Mr. Magoo's Christmas Carol at the Gerald Lynch Theatre in New York City, starring Douglas Sills, Joshua Henry and Betsy Wolfe.  He has also adapted four classic musicals - Hair, On the Twentieth Century, Chess, and Funny Girl - for The Actors Fund’s concert series.  In addition to creating events for The Actors Fund, Vineyard Theatre, Lincoln Center, WNYC, The Jacob Burns Film Center, and The Drama League, Tim has traveled all over the map as a contributing writer to Passport Magazine.  He was personally selected by Fred Ebb to write the liner notes for the triple platinum Special Limited Edition CD/DVD soundtrack recording of the 2003 Oscar®-winning motion picture Chicago.  Tim proudly serves on the advisory board of The Fred Ebb Foundation and the Board of Directors of Mark Stuart Dance Theatre. Originally from Auburn, New York, Tim is a member of The Ensemble Studio Theatre’s Playwrights unit, Actors’ Equity as well as The Dramatists Guild.
